Entries are now open for the annual Rise Awards, celebrating outstanding achievements by women in the media technology industry.
This year’s awards include two new categories: Ally of the Year, honouring men who have been supportive of striving to achieve gender diversity; and Business Operations of the Year, celebrating an individual who excels at making sure the workforce and clients are happy and the business is reaching its targets.
Submissions and nominations are open to those working across the media tech industry, including manufacturers, service providers, engineers and broadcasters. The awards are free to enter and nominations will close on 18th August.
A drinks event during IBC Show will reveal the shortlist, with the winners set to be announced on Thursday 10th November at BT Sport’s Studios.
Entrants can be nominated, or can nominate themselves, with all applications requiring statements on the nominee and why they are relevant for the award. The judges, across the categories, are looking for the best demonstration of exceptional achievement, innovation, positive impact, and the ability to fulfil the criteria, said Rise.
Carrie Wootten, managing director of Rise, said: “We’re delighted to launch the 2022 edition of the Rise Awards. This is the fourth year running we have held the Awards, a core part of Rise that plays such a fundamental role in celebrating inspirational women in our exciting industry.”
